We being you and me at this site. I, of course, am offering to cough up for this but interested parties can contribute if they accept the offer.
And what is more absurd that offering to subsidise the bureaucracy surrounding a Morris Dancing procession?
A troupe of Morris dancers have been forced to end a 900-year-old traditional parade after red tape costs spiralled “out of all proportion”.
The Dolphin Morris Men revived the ancient Whitsun ceremony in 1981 but have now called a halt to the event claiming: “The 21st century has caught up with us.”
This Saturday will mark the final procession, which dates back to 1109 and sees the dancers cover 20 miles from Nottingham to Southwell, after organisers said they could no longer handle the mountain of “paperwork and bureaucracy”.
Chris Gigg, event co-ordinator, said: “What started as a simple procession has become very complicated. The cost associated with this year’s event has been about £500.
I’m sure that a whip round to cover that annual cost of £500 can be done. So I’ve offered to do so. Assuming they accept still cheaper than marching on Westminster and hanging the bastards, isn’t it?
